Dedicated to Hewlett-Packard!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Company (Vintage Contemporaries) (Kindle Edition)
I originally added this to my wishlist after reading an article on Seth Godin's blog on some books he recommended to read.
I knew I would like the book from the minute the dedication page said the book was for Hewlett-Packard. As an ex HP employee who had to go through the Compaq merger and the dreaded Carly years, that had my attention straight away. The fact that the fictional company in this book mirrors not only HP, but other companies I've worked for like Oracle simply makes this book hilarious. It had a very sudden and abrupt ending which is the only reason I didn't mark it much higher. It reminded me of the movie "The Raid". That movie had a great start and middle, but the end came very quickly and was not as polished as the rest in my personal opinion.
Having said all of the above, if you work for a large company, this is a great book to buy, as well as e by Matt Beaumont.
